Board of Research

Meenakshi Academy of Higher Education and Research (MAHER) is dedicated to the pursuit of excellence in research and strives to build a research conducive culture, as a part of its educational excellence model, for the development and promotion of scientific temper and research aptitudes among its faculty members, students, and research scholars. The Institution provides all necessary infrastructure and resources to promote research at the levels of constituent colleges. For an effective working of the system, MAHER has constituted the Board of Research (BOR) to monitor and supervise the overall scientific work carried out in MAHER and its constituent colleges. The BOR consists of not only internal members from within the Institution but also external members from other organizations who are distinguished names in their respective fields, to provide their valuable inputs and guidance in matters regarding to research and development activities. MAHER ensures effective functioning of the BOR under the guidance of Dean Research to ensure smooth functioning in conducting meaningful research, scrutiny of ethical aspects, plagiarism checking and publications related activities. The Board also oversees IPR activities, publications, consultancy projects, research grants and incentives.
